Killing cancer sells by Herpes infection

Science is trying to kill melanoma cells by infecting lab grown Herpes virus. Melanoma is 6 th killer in total cancer and it is number 1 killed of skin cancer, no new treatment available except interferon and some new experimental drugs. But recent trial of infection patient to herpes , grown in labs seems working for treatment of Melanoma.We’re still far from eradicating cancer, but researchers are making progress with all sorts of interesting therapies that could put a stop to abnormal cell growth and cure certain types of cancer.
The Food and Drug Administration approved the new virus-based therapy, Ars Technica reports, which uses the talimogene laherparepvec (T-VEC) virus,to treat advanced melanoma, initiating “ cancer cells death ” when mixed these types of cells. The virus also carries a protein called GM-CSF that triggers the immune system that jumps in as the virus destroys cancer cells.
T-VEC isn’t a miracle cure so far and only improves survival for 4.5 month so far.
More details about T-VEC therapy are available in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
